Fix for Kegetys Smith And Wesson Revolvers?

Recommended Posts

I'm (very) late to the OFP party, and I'm trying out the FDF mod on CWA. Somewhere (I forgot where - the FDF site?) said that the Smith And Wesson Revolver mod is needed for some FDF missions. I have installed all of the FDF recommended addons, including the revolver addon. I start the first mission in the FDF campaign and I get a message saying "cannot load mission - missing required addon KEGsw66". I click to dismiss that message, and then get another message saying the same thing about KEGsw44m.

I googled this problem and and it appears that the addon is known to be broken, but for a supposedly required component for a popular mod, I'm surprised that I can't find any patches or instructions for fixing it. I found one guy who posted a fix for it a long time ago, but the link is dead.

I have tried using the addon in both the root AddOns directory and also the Addons subdirectory of the finmod folder, but I have the same problem either way. Can anybody help?

You can download the addon at ofpr.info.

If Link doesn't work for you, simply search for 'Kegetys'.

I thought I was clear that I already had the add-on, and in fact I had tried different installation directories for it. What I am asking for is a patch/fix instructions, or a workaround to avoid these errors which the author himself has acknowledged are an issue with the add-on.

On the off chance your link was a fixed version, I DL'ed it, and it has the exact same files (I ran a diff on them) which are known to be broken.

@DrakeTungsten

Are you using latest version of FDF mod (1.4)?

Thanks very much, but the link says that the file is not currently available and to try again later. I will certainly do that, but can I ask you to verify that it's uploaded correctly?

Downloaded and it worked for me. Thanks again.

Now that the revolvers are fixed, I get message about not being able to load a mission because fdf_worlds is missing when I start the FDF campaign, but the first mission starts anyway. I then loaded each individual mission in FDF and played them for a minute to test them out, and they did all start and play, even though a few of them gave the message "cannot load mission, missing something-or-other,-depends-on-the-mission" at the beginning (but oddly enough, none of the messages from the individual missions said they were missing fdf_worlds).

Should I be concerned about these "cannot load mission" messages? The missions do load and play (at the least for the minute or two I tried them for). Is it possible that whetever these messages are complaining about will be a problem later on in the mission?
